Abstract
In this article we show that for initial data close to local minimizers of the Möbius energy the gradient flow exists for all time and converges smoothly to a local minimizer after suitable reparametrizations. To prove this, we show that the heat flow of the Möbius energy possesses a quasilinear structure which allows us to derive new short-time existence results for this evolution equation and a Łojasiewicz-Simon gradient inequality for the Möbius energy.
